This 58-minute film is a powerful documentary that reaches across the political and ideological divide to expand support for major healthcare reform. The film was two years in the making, with more than forty voices advocating for reform, including: activists, health policy experts, economists, physicians, nurses, patients, business and labor leaders. This documentary takes an in-depth look into how our dysfunctional health care system is damaging our economy, suffocating our businesses, discouraging physicians and negatively impacting on the nation’s health, while remaining un-affordable for a third of our citizens. Our health care crisis continues. Premiums, high deductibles, co-payments, and out of pocket expenses, are ever-increasing. Many people cannot get needed medical care. Diabetics die when they can’t afford the high cost of insulin. They suffer, get sicker, and even die. Watching this film can be a valuable experience and educate people on why we need Medicare for All.
Maria Termini is an artist, writer, and activist. She works for justice in health care by advocating for single payer health care.
